Question a a feature not listed in my manual

New here, so bear with me if this has been asked before.
I bought a use 29' Cardinal, dealer went over everything and did a nice job on all the information (almost overload) but did not cover the two red rocker arm switches titled "Arctic Pack"
Can someone enlighten me.
Thanks.

Welcome to the forum and congrats on the new camper.
Sounds like they are to turn on the heating blankets for the holding tanks so that they don't freeze up in cold weather.

X2. Arctic pac = tank heaters. Some will run on 12volts (so be very careful about having them on whey dry camping. And some run only on 110volts

on my last cedar creek they were 12 volt pads
all four tanks had heaters

they use some amps but not really to bad, they dont heat the water , just keep the bottom from freezing,

Ultra Heat, Inc. - Shop Online

will give you the exact amps

Wished I could test how many amps they actually use with the Trimetric monitor we've installed but unfortunately they are thermostatically controlled and don't heat until the temperatures drop. I will have to wait until winter. Oh wait, judging by the weather in our part of the country it's now fall so winter is just a week away! Stinking rain....

This is my first post ever anywhere,site was recommended to me. I own a 07 sunseeker class C and had the same question as someone else about the Artic Pac. Just bought the M/H a couple of months ago and very happy with it. First one.Anyway I notice you answered my question(about what is ArticPac) without me having to ask it.
